About our Freshmen Academy . . . 

​Our new Freshmen Academy is designed to be a small learning community just for 9th graders.  We're created a corridor of classrooms with all specially selected 9th grade Academy teachers for classes in English Language Arts and Math and 3 special course offerings - one of which all Freshmen Academy students will take: AP Human Geography, AVID or Freshmen Success.  These classes provide an important foundation - the study skills, rigor, nurture and support our newest Spartans need to achieve success in 9th grade and beyond.  We can't wait to get started together.

Here's a link to the research and rationale behind 9th Grade Academies.


 A few items that are nonnegotiable:

  • ALL freshmen received an agenda. They must use it daily: 
    • Students must write in the agenda every day: Learning Target, Daily Vocabulary, Gradual Release, and Evidence of Mastery.
    • Please utilize the agenda for passes. No agenda = no passes


Congrats Freshmen Academy Rock Stars for August!
